No. 3 Gonzaga Outlasts No. 1 Duke to Win Maui Invitational

Auburn vs. Duke live stream: Watch Maui Invitational online

Barrett had 23 points and Zion Williamson scored 22 for the suddenly humbled Blue Devils. "For us to come out of Maui 3-0 is big time."@ZagMBB's Zach Norvell caught up with @TheAndyKatz after the huge W over Duke!

Thanks to struggles with jump shooting, Duke faced a tight game in game's final 10 minutes for the first time this season. Zaga was in charge during the whole first half, and they were protecting the rim very well, preventing layups and making it hard for the Blue Devils to score from inside the paint.

Taking advantage of Gonzaga big man Brandon Clarke's fourth foul, Duke pulled within a basket as Blue Devils fans sent an quake of noise off the rafters of tiny Lahaina Civic Center. Duke got a defensive stop due to an illegal screen foul call but Cam Reddish missed a forced shot inside as Duke was aggressive on defense as it sought to get two possessions before the end of the half.

This was the game everyone expected when the Maui Invitational got another marquee title game between the what-will-they-do-next Blue Devils against the electrically efficient Zags. Overall, it was a well-played game on both sides, but if there's one thing Twitter loves, it's seeing top-ranked teams - Duke specifically - go down with an L. 2 Kentucky look like a JV team.

Forcing Duke defenders through one ball screen after another, Gonzaga played the position-less basketball game better than the Blue Devils.

So what if the iPad Pro bends easily?
I'm not defending Apple here but we have to be reasonable too right? In short, Apple's tablet was found to be extremely bendy. If you don't want to shop at Walmart, B&H Photo now has the same iPad for 284.95, and they don't charge tax.

The Blue Devils kept the runaway going with an early 8-0 run in the second half, building the lead to 71-46 on Williamson's breakaway windmill dunk. "We're the best team in the country and I'm the best player too". They led by as many as 26 points midway through the second half and were never really threatened, though several lapses allowed Winthrop to mount modest runs.

Duke came into the game as the tournament favorite and looked like it would run Auburn out of the gym after racing past San Diego State in the opener.

The Zags swatted Duke's bid away.

San Diego State 79, Xavier 74: Jalen McDaniels scored 25 points, Devin Watson added 21 and the Aztecs topped the Musketeers to earn a spot in the Maui Invitational fifth-place game.

Auburn (5-1) gave top-ranked Duke its first real test of the season in the semifinals before losing by six. They were up eight at halftime, and even brought their lead above double-digits thanks to a dominant performance by Rui Hachimura, who ended up with 20 points.
